The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) is a non-profit, social welfare and spiritual organisation engaged in propagating spiritual knowledge to society at large and providing education in the techniques of spiritual life in order to achieve real unity and peace in the world.
Our Brisbane centre, which is located in Seventeen Mile Rocks, is home to a dynamic and expanding community. This centre is tirelessly endeavouring to strengthen the ethical and spiritual fabric of society through various spiritual and educational programs.

What happens to the money that I donate to ISKCON Brisbane?
An overview of ISKCON Brisbane’s finances is available here.
As you can see, from maintaining daily worship at the temple to providing free feasts and large festivals, to children’s classes as well as outreach and education programs, even building a brand new temple, all of these initiatives come at an expense.
While effort is made to minimise financial costs, none of these initiatives can exist without your help.
But many hands make light work. If we all contribute just a small amount daily, not only will we be able to maintain the current initiatives, we will be able to do much more!

To give something to Krishna is an extremely elevated activity – whether you give some of your time to hear and chant, some of your energy, some of your money or ultimately some of your love. If we give something to Krishna we do not loose anything. In whatever way you give something to him, he will reciprocate in manifold ways. If you can therefore give something to please the Lord, it is also for your own benefit. A devotee offers everything to Krishna – his words, his actions and his thoughts. This is, of course, an elevated platform, but Krishna declares in the Bhagavad-gita that if you cannot do this, then give at least a part of the fruits of your activities and you will gain upliftment to a spiritual platform.
In order to offer Krishna opulent worship, many things are required. Your help is highly appreciated.
